Doriliz's story

Through the years I lived many experiences that have shaped the human being that I am today: A powerful, free and passionate woman. Powerful in conquering goals and achievements, free to express my ideals without fear of being judged and passionate about life and transformation. Taekwondo came into my life at the moment that I most needed it, I needed to feel valued. Taekwondo gave me the confidence to achieve things in my life that at one time I thought I would never dare to do. With many complexes and many insecurities I dared to make a change. A life of frustrations, inferiorities and difficulties; It was transformed into a life full of opportunities, security and many achievements. With the desire to be better, to believe in me, to do what I always dreamed of , Taekwondo gave me he discipline, the structure and the principles they teach and the impacted me in a way that they helped me to live and saved my life. I'm a recovered person from an eating disorder for almost 8 years, everything adds up to the low self-esteem that I had of myself and the lack of security, this disease almost took my life. It was just at that moment that this discipline coincidentally came to me, it was the structure and discipline that this art developed in me that support my recover. This is my way of life, not only saved my life, but it has allowed me to achieve goals that were previously only dreams. I have managed to impact lives with my story. Taekwondo is and was my salvation in ALL aspects of my life and the most that I love is knowing that it can be impact the LIFE of others in the same way.
